      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

  1. Legendary Nintendo boss Hiroshi Yamauchi dies at 85




    The former president of Nintendo, and one of the most influential businessmen the video games world has ever seen, has passed away in Japan.
    Although Yamauchi never made a single game himself, and reportedly didn’t even like to play them, few people in history have had as much influence on the video games industry as he has.
    Yamauchi joined Nintendo in 1949 (the history of the company stretches back to 1889) and became chairman in the 1970s, when he took the company public. It is he that steered Nintendo from a maker of playing cards and other ventures to arguably the most influential video games company in the world.
    He oversaw the introduction of the NES in the early ‘80s and was partly responsible for hiring a young Shigeru Miyamoto, following an introduction from a mutual friend of his father.
    Yamauchi instituted working practises that are still followed by Nintendo today, including multiple research and development groups that are encouraged to compete with each other in terms of technology and innovation.
    Continuing as president through the SNES, Nintendo 64, and GameCube eras Yamauchi saw Nintendo through all its highs and lows, until he stepped down from his role as president in 2002. He was succeeded by current president Satoru Iwata.
    Despite stepping down from his main role Yamauchi remained closely involved with the company and is credited with being partially responsible for the concept behind the Nintendo DS – the most successful video games hardware ever made.
    He also remained Nintendo’s largest shareholder and was one of Japan’s richest men, with a net worth of approximately £1.6 billion.
    Details of Yamauchi’s death have not been revealed, but Nintendo has released this short statement: ‘Nintendo is in mourning today from the sad loss of the former Nintendo president Mr Hiroshi Yamauchi, who sadly passed away this morning’.
    For those interested in his life and the early days of Nintendo we strongly recommend David Sheff’s book Game Over, although it currently seems to be out of print at Amazon.

    So Nintendo's next gen console finally getting a sneak peek this week.  I haven't bought a console in the last couple rounds of console wars really, but it does look interesting I guess.
    They are making a gamble though using cartridges rather than Blu Ray.  Puts them into exclusively gaming rather than a media player type zone like Xbox One.  I see their big challenge being pricing and the execution, they really need a strong lineup of games and actually have 3rd party support.  Zelda and Mario alone isn't gonna do it.
